Get ready for zombie invasion

Beware: the walking dead are on their way to Duncan.

They will be lurching through the streets of downtown Duncan this Saturday as the Cowichan Community Options Society holds its annual Zombie Walk.

The walk itself begins at 10:30 a.m., starting at Charles Hoey Park, but anyone who wants morbid makeup done in advance for a $2 donation can start showing up at 9:30 a.m. This is the fourth year for the Zombie Walk, which is held in conjunction with the Downtown Business Improvement Area Society’s Spooktacular.

Targeted for the haunting is the area around the Duncan Farmer’s Market.

"We skirt the market and go around downtown Duncan and back to the park," COS youth support and outreach worker Jarred van de Mortel said.

"Everybody in the market likes to see us shuffling our way down the street."

Cosplay group Umbrella Corp. West Coast Operations will be on hand with their spectacular costumes and a photo booth so participants can get their photos taken for a $5 donation. Coffee, popcorn and juice will also be available for donations.

All proceeds go to the United Way, which in turn supports Community Options.
